Filmfare Awards 2002

concluded in Indian time. The big winner was Sanjay Leela Bhansali's expensive nauseatingly opulent mainstream clichéd sobfest Devdas (Company would have been, IMHO, as a winner, a better indication of progress for the film industry, but then it's all about money). If I had to opine about every award, I'd be sued for hitting space limits on this web-hosting service. But for the record: the winners of the big four suck like a conglomerate of running vacuum cleaners.

As an aside, here's an update on yet another of Bollywood's claims to being different. {more musings on the anil kapoor movie}. My guess that it's a take on Training Day seems to be unfounded based on the plot according to Anurag Kashyap: My new film All Win Kalicharan produced by Tutu Sharma is amazing. The film stars Anil Kapoor and several stage artistes from Delhi. We have shown the markets crashing in 2008. In 2015, seven years later, everything goes haywire. There is no dividing line left between right and wrong or black and white. Everybody is corrupt and goes berserk. It is set in Hastinapur (formerly known as Delhi). The streets are full of magicians, belly dancers, trapeeze artistes and all kinds of people who offer momentary gratification.

It's Allwyn Kalicharan {added: Feb 26, 2003}
